This is what I wore to Thanksgiving at my Nanna's.  My favorite color palette in the world, Autumn.  When I got this sweater in the mail I knew I wanted to wait to wear it on Thanksgiving.  I love how 70's it is, reminds me of an embroidered pillow.  And its just the right shade of green.  Im excited its tights weather!  Although Ive poked holes in almost all of my cute tights already.  I can hardly wear a pair of tights without poking holes in them... anyone else have this problem?  And I usually do it the first time I wear them, and most often, within the first hour.  Maybe I need to go back and embrace my 90's teenage self who loved tights only if they had holes in them.  (Ever+mi.crush carries my Violet Bella jewelry!  You can find it here).

We had a really nice thanksgiving gathering at my Nanna's house.  I love that I have a loving family who doesn't fight and can just be with each other.  It was very laid back with lots of really good food.  So much to be thankful for.  Of course it was a pretty bittersweet day for me, as all holidays are now without my mom and dad.  But I kept them close to my heart, like I always do.  I'm always reminded by someone in my family how much I resemble my mom, and that makes me happy.  I need to take a photo of us side by side for you guys to see!

I know its kind of been outfit post and giveaway central around this blog lately.  As fun as those things are, I am yearning for some good time to blog more heart to heart.  This season just keeps me so busy.  I'm planning on changing some things up here on the blog at the beginning of the new year.  I will no longer be doing as many individual giveaways, and doing just a small handful a month in big groups.  (kind of like I use to).  I'm also hoping to change up the layout of the blog in general as well.  Lot's of regrouping, brainstorming, letting go and simplifying.  It's what I need. 

We are still having sales in all of our shops, through monday!  Things are selling out fast!!!  If your looking to do some of your holiday shopping with handmade artists and not go fight the hustle in the city, there are so many great deals online this weekend!  Get 20% everything in Roots and Feathers, Violet Bella & Skyline Fever with the code BLACKNUMBERONE at checkout.  (Get an extra 10% off if you leave a note at time of checkout telling me where that code came from).  We will also combine shipping if you order from both shops.  We will refund you when we are shipping the items out.

Today I will be filled up with packaging orders and cleaning my house.  While listening to loud music and drinking tons of lemon water.

Please read my last post to see if you were a giveaway winner!

Roots & Feathers Shop Update >>>

Good morning!  Its been a little quiet over here in my corner of the world.  Ive been working hard on my project coming soon.  I know many of you have been asking when its going to be released!  There is not an actual release date yet, but as soon as I know Ill announce it.  Most likely within the next week, eeek!!  I also had a little down between dropping my camera the other day and breaking my self timer, and then starting my monthly girl time...   So, not alot of picture taking over here these past 3 days.  But, its given me time to focus on the more nitty gritty parts of what Im doing that really needed to be done anyway.  So its all good!  I just got a new self timer in the mail, and its a fancy one this time, so I have some schooling to do before I can even use it!  ...I keep meaning to post on here that I have been listing lots of new pretties in my Roots and Feathers shop, and even a few in my Violet Bella shop!  And there are many more to come, so keep posted!


Black Friday Sale >>>

I am definitely not one to participate in the madness of Black Friday at the mall and stores.  I plan on doing it from the comfort of my home, in my pjs, with a cup of joe in hand.  So for those of you who are with me on this one, Im offering my own little black friday sale in my etsy shops Violet Bella and Roots and Feathers.  Just enter the code above at checkout to receive the discount.  

Im making it a priority again this year to buy as much handmade for gifts as I can.  Not all of my gifts will be handmade, but when I can I will.  Im so excited to be supporting some of my favorite artists this year and spreading the love I have for them with friends and family!  Along with making some of my own gifts.  Who is in with me?  What artists are you most excited to buy from this year?  Id love to know!
